Balluff Releases New Miniature Photoelectric Sensors
Florence, KY -- Even though they are compact in size, Balluff's second generation line of 6K miniature sensors provides extensive capabilities in solving the toughest applications. These distance measuring sensors now offer longer sensing ranges, better resolution, and higher repeatability. Five sensing modes are available including background suppression, diffuse, retroreflective, through-beam and contrast.
Not only does the small size provide flexibility in installation, but set up is easy with the simple pushbutton teach. Connections are made by cable, M8 three-pin or M8 four-pin quick disconnect and all versions are now IP67, IP69, and Ecolab approved.
Built to Balluff's high standards, the 6K sensors offer reverse polarity protection and short circuit protection. Balluff's attention to quality, superior sensor design and performance means better reliability, less downtime and higher productivity.
